Rep. Charlie Dent said Thursday he’s still not onboard with the GOP’s revised health care bill.

The Pennsylvania Republican said on MSNBC that there are areas that need more work before he’ll be able to support the legislation, and some of the amendments added have actually taken away support from some moderates.

“I suspect there will be a vote when there are enough votes to pass it,” Mr. Dent said. “This amendment hasn’t really brought in a lot of people from the center right.”

Mr. Dent said the focus needs to be more on the individual market and that he wanted to see more Democrats participating in drafting the legislation instead of a one party push. Mr. Dent is the leader of the moderate Tuesday Group, who went to battle with the conservative Freedom Caucus over the last Republican health bill in March.
